VPAR has been shortlisted for the Sports Technology Awards in two categories – Best Technology and Best Sports App in a Single Sport. Joining the likes of Sky, O2, Wilson and Adidas, VPAR will now go on to see which company emerges victorious at the awards ceremony in April.
With technology influencing sport like never before, The Sports Technology Awards rewards and celebrates the best and most innovative technology advances within the sector.
VPAR is the global leader in live golf scoring. Their technology is trusted by hundreds of golf clubs and event organizers across 20 countries and five continents, supplying over 750 events worldwide each year.VPAR is revolutionising the way golf is played and experienced. Amateurs have for so long been playing a game very different to the pros, without knowing how you are doing relative to the rest of the field.
In the Best Sports App category, on top of the live scoring element, the app combines all the other crucial features needed to create the ultimate experience and catering for all golfers’ desires. These include GPS & Course planner, performance and stats tracking, social media integration and a course directory of over 30,000 courses worldwide.
Rebecca Hopkins, Director of the Sport Technology Awards explained ‘The influence of technology on sport continues to grow and can often be invisible as it contributes in so many unseen ways. This includes the way fans engage with athletes and teams, how coaches prepare their charges for major events or how broadcasters relay sport – the list is almost endless. The Sports Technology Awards have been created as a showcase for the companies which enhance all elements of the sector and the response has been amazing. It is testament to the work of VPAR that they fought off significant competition to make the shortlist.’
Jason Stoop, Managing Director of VPAR said, ‘We are absolutely delighted to have been nominated for two categories in this year’s Sport Technology Awards alongside such established and world renown brands. At VPAR we are revolutionising the way amateurs experience and play golf, and it is fantastic that both our managed service and app have both been recognised after such positive client feedback and years of hard work.’
